This new engine oil is designed to provide excellent performance and protection under the conditions outboards experience, including the higher likelihood of rust and corrosion due to operating and storage environments being immersed in, or close to, water.

Phillips 66 Injex Marine Motor Oil, the first four-cycle marine engine oil offering from ConocoPhillips Lubricants, was created in response to industry growth and an increased presence of four-stroke outboard engines, according to Tanya Niu, director of industrial products at ConocoPhillips Lubricants.

"According to a recent J.D. Power and Associates report, four-stroke engines now outnumber two-strokes in many of the outboard-powered boating segments, including fishing, pontoon and runabout," Niu says. "We recognized this rising trend as a great opportunity to provide a more complete recreational product line."

According to the study, growth of four-stroke engines in the marketplace stems from overall consumer satisfaction due to their many benefits, such as reliable and easy starting, quiet operation at cruising speeds, fuel economy, reduced engine fumes, smooth shifting and overall reliable operation.

"In preparation for boating season, consumers can experience the proven performance benefits of four-stroke engine operation along with the quality and reliability of the Phillips 66 lubricants," adds Niu. 

Phillips 66 Injex Marine Motor Oil meets all NMMA FC-W specification requirements for four-cycle marine engine oils, and is licensed by NMMA, satisfying all manufacturer warranty requirements when FC-W oils are recommended. Phillips 66 Injex Marine Motor Oil also provides the following benefits for four-cycle marine engines: outstanding protection from rust and corrosion of internal engine components, excellent wear protection during high-speed operation and extended idle times, enhanced bearing protection in vertical crankshaft engines and excellent protection against piston deposits and ring sticking.

The new marine engine oil will be available in an SAE 10W-30 viscosity grade, in packaged cases of quarts. It is not suitable for use in two-cycle outboard engines, and is also not intended for use in passenger cars and light trucks.
